Cottagers admit Okaka interest

Fulham boss Roy Hodgson has confirmed an interest in signing Roma striker Stefano Okaka on loan in the January transfer window.

The 20-year-old impressed against the Cottagers in the Europa League earlier this season and Hodgson is keeping tabs on the talented forward.

He said:"Okaka is a possibility for us. We're looking into it and have shown an interest.

"How far we go down that road will depend on other things like whether he wants to come on loan to England. The finances of the situation will also be important.

"Okaka has got quality and the fact it's a loan is also advantageous because he's a young player and largely untried.

"We're happy with our striking options, but we would like to have some cover and someone who can put pressure on the guys we have.

"Okaka seems to be that type of player, but a lot of water must pass under the bridge before he pulls on a Fulham shirt."
